This course introduces contemplative photography from an embodied, somatic approach drawing on Body-Mind Centering®. In weekly zoom classes experience guided somatic movement meditations that engage perceptual process. Play with ways of attending to and framing experience, and evoke creative perspectives on movement and the visual world. Meditation practice leads into a weekly theme to guide your contemplative photography practice for the week.
Some of the themes we will touch on:
-synchronizing mind, physical presence, camera and environment
-noticing and framing fields of colour, texture, pattern, space, light and shadow
-form & emptiness in somatic and visual perception
-surfaces of contact, reflection, connection and mystery
-contents, story & relationship
-vibration & liveliness in matter
-movement in stillness and stillness in motion
